Gordon Wrubel: PCGS has added another interesting reverse variety to this date: Extra Large 10C. This reverse is found only on the very first die pair of 1829, JR-1. It uses a reverse die of 1828 which is very distinctive and easily recognized. The "10" is VERY LARGE,almost completely filling the space between the eagle and the rim. Other characteristics of the die include small denticles with double denticles over "U" and between "AT". The period after the 10C is normal in size,unlike the huge period found on the "Large 10C" variety which is only found on JR-2. This variety is very scarce.
